Underground Images: School of Visual Arts Subway Posters, 1947 to the Present – NCAD, Thomas Street, Dublin 8 – FREE – Until Friday, 31st January
This is a small but pretty cool event being hosted not far from Oscars International at The National College of Art and Design. This special exhibition brings together around sixty of the myriad posters created at School of Visual Arts in New York for display in the vast New York City subway system. It offers a glimpse into the history of the college and the collective talent of its acclaimed design and illustration faculty. This ends on Friday January 31, 2020 so you will need to be quick. It’s also a nice excuse to go in and have a look around the college which has great and is not expensive.
Watch the Six Nations in a Pub, Dublin – FREE (except for the pints) – Saturday 4.45pm
Rugby is a big deal in Ireland and we are not too bad at it. This weekend Ireland play Scotland in what is called The Six Nations. This is one of the longest running sporting tournaments in the world and it is usually a great spectacle. We are particularly fond of the Scots because we get on quite well and like each other’s humour. Expect to see lots of men in kilts and plenty of good-natured banter. The game kicks-off at 4.45pm on Saturday so you can expect a good night out in Dublin.
